Patience…God Isn’t Finished With Me Yet

My Abba has so much patience with me, if I would only practice it for myself. I especially love this quote,”God’s patience is infinite. Men, like small kettles, boil quickly with wrath at the least wrong. Not so with God. If God were as wrathful, the world would have been a heap of ruins long ago.”

I was pondering what it takes to become more patient and my friend said, it comes from maturity. He Must Increase in us and we MUST decrease in the things that hold us back…specifically issues with ego, being self centered and not Yeshua/Jesus focused.

Each day I remind myself that today is the day that He made not the day I made. I choose not to live ‘in the moment’ but to live in His Plan and not focus on Nancy-self but on others and Yeshua.

We cannot Mature if we are not in relationship with Him.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
